FiveThirtyEight.com estimates the Portland crowd at about 1,000 tea-baggers.
Now as for this being a "grass-roots" movement, that seems a bit unlikely, especially since it was heavily advertised by FOX Noise and funded by groups like Dick Armey's 'FreedomWorks', Exxon-Mobile and others. 'Astroturf' would be a more appropriate appellation for this synthetic movement.
Oregonian numbers for 1000... They didn't even send a reporter.
Oh and... Does my siggy look like 1000 people? I got more photos just like it. We had anywhere from 5000-7000 people.
If you want to believe the rag they call the Oregonian... Fine... Take it from someone in Oregon, it's a piece of crap paper.
